How to get started

Step 1 – Select ‘HOVER Now - Roof Square Estimate’ as the measurements type 

  • Start a new job by tapping the ‘+’ sign.
  • Enter the property name and address
  • Select ‘HOVER Now - Roof Square Estimate’ as the measurements type.
  • Tap 'Add photos.'

Step 2 – Capture a property with HOVER 

  • Watch this video with best practices on how to successfully take photos of a property with HOVER. 
  • Once you've taken 8 photos of the property, tap 'Finish.' 
  • If you wish, you can add notes to this property that you and your team can refer to in the future. Tap 'Create Roof Square Estimate' and that's it for you.
  • Note that an internet connection is required for HOVER Now. Only when you’re connected, your photos will upload properly so we can calculate the roof squares.

Step 3 – Open the property details to see the HOVER Now estimate

  • You can access the property details by tapping the three dots on the right of the property. 
  • If you see the notification ‘Calculating,’ it means that we’re still calculating the roof squares and you can expect the estimate within 15 minutes. 
  • A green dot will appear next to the property once the HOVER Now estimate is ready. 
  • We’ll also send you a push notification when the estimate is ready. 
  • If you see the message 'Unavailable,' it means that we were unfortunately not able to deliver a HOVER Now estimate for this property. We’re working hard to continuously improve our technology so we can support more properties in the near future. But don’t worry – unless you've been notified otherwise, you can still order the Roof-Only or Complete 3D & measurements.

Step 4 – Optional upgrade to a Roof-Only or Complete order

  • You can upgrade your HOVER Now at any time to a Roof-Only or Complete order to receive the interactive 3D model and all detailed measurements by clicking on the ‘Get 3D and Measurements’ button.
  • Then you’ll have the option to select a ‘Roof-Only’ or ‘Complete.’
  • Once your Roof-Only or Complete order is ready, you will receive an email with the link to the measurements PDF and the interactive 3D model. 


HOVER Now is $5 per property for Basic users. Users who are part of the HOVER Membership can order unlimited HOVER Nows at no additional cost. 


  • Is the price for HOVER Now counted towards a Roof-Only or Complete order? The cost of a HOVER Now (if any) will be deducted from a Roof-Only or Complete order, so you can upgrade anytime to better engage your customer, win more business, and order the right amount of material. 
  • Does HOVER Now give any other measurements besides the roof squares, such as ridges, rakes, or eaves? No, HOVER Now only provides an estimate of the roof squares as well as the predominant pitch. You can upgrade to a Roof-Only or Complete order at any time to receive all detailed exterior measurements.
